Volunteers are Awesome
Volunteer at a GO Pantry Event!
We couldn’t do it without you! We need awesome volunteers to help at community events and at the warehouse. Warehouse duties might include date checking and sorting donations, packing GO Boxes and GO Bags, loading and stacking boxes on pallets, taking plastic off canned goods, etc. Most of our shifts are on weekdays, but we also offer some weekend and evening shifts.
We use SignUp.com to get the word out about volunteer events. The sign-ups give all the specifics including date, shift times, shift descriptions, etc.
If interested in volunteering, you can fill out the form below or email email@example.com
VOLUNTEER TO HOST A FOOD DRIVE
It’s easier than you might think!
One of the best ways you can support GO Pantry is by hosting your own food drive. Get creative… work with your kids, co-workers, fellow church members, neighbors, sports teams, retail stores, gym, etc.
Watch this video to see just how easy it can be to host a neighborhood food drive.
Not only will you collect much needed items, you will also help spread the word about GO Pantry the kids we are working so hard to help.
We love our volunteers! We are so thankful for their selfless service. Without them we wouldn’t be able to accomplish nearly as much or have as great of an impact.
As a retired teacher, Eileen Marks was first introduced to GO Pantry at the school where she worked. Many of her students received our GO Bags and GO Boxes. Eileen saw what a blessing these are to the kids who receive them.
Eileen says her favorite part about volunteering is, “Knowing that I am helping families who are suffering from food insecurity. Knowing that children may not have enough to eat when they are at home breaks my heart. Everyone deserves to feel loved. I believe your bags are a significant way of showing others that they are loved, important and worthy and that people care.”
When Eileen isn’t volunteering, you might see her out training for a race. She is an avid runner and trains for races of all distances year round. She loves to exercise but also enjoys sitting down with a good book.
You are a busy lady, Eileen! Many thanks for all of the time you have spent helping GO Pantry and the kids we serve.

Kids’ Age Requirement
Because we work in a busy warehouse with lots of moving equipment, we ask kids to be 12+ to work at a warehouse event, and we request kids 12-14 bring an adult with them to work directly with them.
We have lots of groups of young kids that find other creative ways to help too. Other groups of students have worked together to do food drives within their schools, neighborhoods, sports teams, church groups, etc.
We can share with you more details if this is something you might like to try with your kids
Waiver for Minors
All volunteers need to complete a waiver before working at GO Pantry warehouse events.
If you are a minor, please have your guardian complete the waiver prior to event and bring it with you to your volunteer shift. Thanks!
